The one that drives me crazy every time I see it is the State Farm she-shed commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ffs4gSJjjV4

Hit by lightning? Please, the house and tall trees in the background aren't even touched. The guy obviously isn't even trying to put the fire out, and that little drizzle of water from the hose wouldn't do any good anyway. And he's horrified when the wife finds out she can get a new chi-chi-er she-shed.

I'm sorry lady but you married an arsonist! Your new she-shed is likely to get "struck by lightning" too!

The only thing I can think of when I see this commercial is a certain episode of a podcast called "Pod Is My Copilot," in which one of the hosts tells a story about an incident they witnessed at a bar that ended with a very similar phrase ("I can taste your beer.").

I know! And when she calls the insurance agent, she says, "Well, it finally happened, Zachary..."
This has happened before!

What she says does indicate, though, that there have been threats or things building up to this; possibly kidnapper-style cut-out letter notes to the effect of "I'm gonna burn down your she-shed." It's a much darker commercial than it appears to be at first glance.

Huh. And I thought the word was "she-she-er". Had to look that up. Now why would she want an "overelaborately pretentious" she shed?

This Foster Farms chicken commercial. They're dancing around, all happy to be free range.

I'm definnitely a carnivore, but all the same I'm not super wild about watching anthropomorphized animals that are going to get killed so I can eat them. I expected the end tag line to be "Simply Raised. Simply Slaughtered."

Nobody complained about Charlie the tuna campaigning to be caught in a net and canned. The happy, dancing chickens are just the latest yummy animals proud of how tasty they are.

I dunno, a cartoon tuna is one thing, but high resolution f/x dancing chickens are another. YMMV.

I'm getting annoyed by the GrubHub commercials. What profligate waste. I mean, the first one the guy is apparently having a couple friends over, so he orders a couple thousand dollars worth of take out from everywhere at once. The second one is worse - they're working at the office on some architectural project, decide to order lunch as a group, and suddenly the architectural project is trash to be dumped on the floor so some guy can standing-jump to the table top and prance around. *sigh*

And I don't get the hate for BrandPower commercials. They're straight up information about the products. Sure, they're the advertiser's words, not writ from on high or findings in technical journals, but they're straightforward descriptions of the products. Isn't that what we long for, instead of stupid nonsense marketing to our fears and desires and cravings?

I listen to radio far more than I watch TV. Other than the insane ravings of the used car dealer--I can't believe that genre of commercial is still around--the most annoying are the commercials that pretend to disguise themselves as news reports. Here's the trusted news reporter who is interviewing a person about how wonderful their service is. Except the reporter is not one of the radio personalities on this station, and the "news report" and accompanying music is nothing like the station's.

"Let's talk about Haribo gummy bears!"


"Let's choke on Haribo gummy bears!"


"Let's jump off a skyscraper onto a pile of Haribo gummy bears!"


"Let's set ourselves on fire and roll around in Haribo gummy bears!"


"Let's shove poisoned Haribo gummy bears up each other's bottoms!"


...just some thoughts of mine...

The commercial could be greatly improved with "Let's talk about Haribo Sugar-free Gummy Bears!", followed by a reading of the top Amazon reviews for the product.

I saw a bad one last night. A little girl wouldn't eat her dinner so Daddy holds up a handful of French fries. So she takes a tiny little bite of broccolli and Daddy hands over the fries and the whole family is happy and smiling. The whole point of the commercial was "bribe your children to eat healthy food with greasy starchy fries!"

I know how my kids would have acted if we were dumb enough to try that. They would have refused to eat anything on their plates unless they were promised French fries and would have found a way to eat dinner one molecule at a time so that they'd get 99.9% fries and .1% actual food.

In addition, every time parents do this, they are further cementing the idea in their kids' heads that "healthy = unpleasant" and "unhealthy = delicious"

Red Robin. Bunch of diners BLISSFULLY shoving fries into their maws, eyes closed in ecstasy. Like some rare and delicious treat. Oily voice boasting 'non-stop fries, plate after plate'. Well, I suppose there are a lot of big empty stomaches out there that need a lot of filling up. I imagine it draws them in while costing Red Robin next to nothing.

And RR fries are not very good, IMHO.

As if you need another reason to skip the fries, they can make you go blind.

One of the Buick commercials that has been running for some time in a vain effort to convince us that people under the age of 75 actually desire such vehicles, has been edited to close with the suggestion to "kick off football season by buying a new Buick".

Why? I can watch football at home, no problemo. A new TV maybe.

A truck commercial that claims that truck drivers are a special breed who know how to work. Pick-up truck drivers work and work and work and work some more. The last two lines of the commercial are "We work until the work is DONE, sleep a few hours, wake up and maybe get a little work done." Look pick up truck drivers, either you work until the work is done or you maybe get a little work done. I can't see how you can do both.

This commercial annoys the heck out of me. Firstly-- no. Truck drivers are not special people who alone understand the value of hard work and secondly-- didn't the writers see that what they wrote made little sense? Especially since that last line is spoken like it's supposed to be some kind of stinger. Ugh!

The pickup truck ad that gets at me is the one that brags about having the most cargo volume. Since the traditional method of comparing truck's cargo hauling capabilities has been weight, that seems a baldfaced attempt to gloss over a deficiency but still have something to claim to be the best at. It's like taking home a test you got an F on, but pointing out to your mom how how good your handwriting was on it.

If you ever had a yeast infection, you'd know how full of joy your hooha would be when it's gone.

I've always wondered how it is Frank Thomas is a better actor than every single professional actor in every Ugenix (or however that testeroni drug is spelled) commercial he's in. I also wonder why everyone he meets has to call him "Frank Thomas" all the time, every time. Not 'Frank' or 'Mr. Thomas' but 'Frank Thomas', like he's Charlie Brown or something.

Technically, any pickup truck without a topper has an infinite cargo volume.

And yeah, she was pretty bad, altho certainly she put her heart into it.

Nugenix, because the first time I heard it in the background I thought it was Eugenics, and I thought And now that you mention the Frank Thomas thing I'm going to notice it every time and it will bug me.

There's a worse "man booster" commercial out there that goes on and on about how modern men are less manly than their fathers and there's a "masculinity crisis" and it shows guys getting facials and crying at the movies instead of the real manly men who are working out and getting it on with the ladies. I think the guys who get facials and stuff are more manly than the target audience who are so worried about if they're manly enough that they spend $$$ on snake oil.

The commercials for FanDuel have been getting to me lately. Here's a guy who is so addicted to using the service which lets him place bets of all sorts online that he is oblivious to, amongst other things, the fact that he just walked in on his wife about to have sex with someone else.

Gambling addiction is a serious problem, and they're using the idea of someone who is a gambling addict as a figure of fun to sell a service that lets him gamble more easily.

I agree--when I first saw that commercial my thought was that the owners of the rights to the movie had a cause of action for so direct a steal.

My second thought was that it's just a dumb message ('who needs skill or training or talent or hard work? just keep a smile on your face and muddle through and everyone will love you') that won't sell any product.

But of course I could be wrong. There may be a target audience that adores that message.

I've seen some car commercial this morning which features households full of increasingly bratty children...some of them are just whining, and some of them are slamming doors with a level of drama more suited to an anti-drug PSA. The commercial's tagline is something about there being room for everyone in the car. I'm not entirely sure why it's necessary to show how horrible these people act in their homes in order to show how much room there supposedly is in the car though.

On the other hand, I did hesitate to include it here because it's one heck of an ad for birth control.

Drug billboard for "managepainsafely.org" : Heroin is a opioid, and so are prescription painkillers..."

Really? You mean my 800mg Ibuprofen is a opioid?

Yeah, assholes, if you dont know enough about prescription painkillers to get your message right, then dont fucking bother, you are just spreading ignorance.

I hate all the Liberty Mutual commercials. Except now there is a new 'standing on the Brooklyn Promenade talking to the camera' one that makes me laugh despite myself. It features a somewhat full of himself actor who cannot remember the lines of the Liberty commercial he's in. At one point he looks very seriously into the camera and says, "Liberty Biberty" and it surprises snort out of me every time.

This Downy commercial has a young man bringing his date home. The guy's clothes are all rumpled from wearing his seat belt. The girl's mother opens the door and sees the guy's wrinkled shirt and pants. She gives the guy a dirty look, pulls her daughter inside, and closes the door. Hey, lady, instead of jumping to conclusions, you should be happy the kids are wearing their seat belts.

I have a teen drive tech idea; it's called seizing the car keys and cellphones.
Or you could report the car as stolen when they leave.

There are many ways to handle this.

Why would anyone think this is a good idea?

Show a little toddler walk by herself thru a city with traffic, people, etc. Falling down while in a crosswalk in front of a bus.

Incredibly scary looking. It's just a little kid! No parent around watching let alone holding her hand. Egad.

What sort of idiots would think this is a good idea.

Oh, yeah. The perpetual winners for worst customer service. The people who don't see things from other people's point of view at all.

Comcast (who thinks using a different sub-name changes things).
